Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
You will need to clean the Waste Ink pad of your printer and reset the printer. To reset the printer follow the steps below:
Download the SSC utility and install it.
This is the link to the SSC Utility:- http://inkjetprinterhelp.us/epsonSSC.html
If there is a language option, select English.
When downloaded and installed, Right Click on the icon in your taskbar and select "Show Main Window". Select "Configuration" and then in BOTH boxes ---- the main list and also Installed Printers ---- select your printer model. With the printer on you can then select "Ink Monitor" and view the levels if you wish, otherwise Close the window, Right click again on the icon and select "Protection Counter", "Show Current Value". This will show both the current and maximum values. Click OK to quit without change. If you wish to reset it, go back through "Protection Counter" and "Reset Protection Counter", A message will prompt about replacing the waste ink pads. Remember, the pads should be changed or washed, dried, and refitted or they "may" eventually overflow through the bottom / lower sides of the printer casing. You will see there are quite a few useful tools in this little utility including cleaning only the black OR colour nozzles, but remember that if you have more than one printer the one you wish to work on must be "Set as Default" in "Printers & Faxes".

There is an Epson Adjustment Program to reset the Waste Ink Pad counter. Looking for a free one for you, but all I could find is a $50 service adjustment program on this website (scroll down for your printer):

Tips for a great answer:
Normally your remedy is to replace
the "Waste Ink Pad/Pads" with a new one/ones and then reset the
"Internal Waste Ink Pad Counter". The waste ink pads are normally
housed in a black plastic box. They are located in the bottom of the printer,
towards the front, just under where the paper starts to exit. You would have to
remove the "Top Cover Assembly" to be able to get to the screw or
screws that hold that assembly in place. If you cannot figure out how to remove
the waste ink pad holder assembly [plastic box], you may need a service manual,
for the removal procedure.
Also Replace the following parts and
reset the counters as described below:
- Waste Ink Pads
- F Box
- Pump Assembly
- Cap Assembly
- Cleaner, Head
- From Maintenance Mode 2 enter the Counter Init. Menu and initialize the Waste Ink counter and Cleaning counter.
